I get some of the best looks and comments from kids this time of the year.
Part of it is because I am slightly overweight and my beard went completely white some years ago. It probably helps that my favorite jacket to wear around happens to be Red.
I also work in a very large school district with a number of schools, most of them of course elementary schools. And everyone, including the principals, office staff and teachers, gets a kick out of it when I finally start wearing the hat this time of year. And the teachers of the youngest grades love how their students straighten up and act like little angels when they see me in the halls...ho,ho,ho ;)
